Report: SG Monta Ellis inks four-year deal with Pacers
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(1:19 pm ET) Free-agent guard Monta Ellis has agreed to a four-year deal with the Pacers, per ESPN's Chris Broussard. Reports say the contract is worth $44 million, with an opt-out after the third season. 

Ellis, who averaged 18.9 points last season with the Mavericks, was coveted by several teams, including the Kings, but after meeting with the Pacers on Wednesday, decided to sign. 

In 10 NBA seasons with the Warriors, Bucks and Mavericks, Ellis has averaged 19.3 points and 4.8 assists. 


Report: Knicks contact restricted free-agent C Enes Kanter
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(12:23 pm ET) After missing out on their primary target in center Greg Monroe, the Knicks have moved on and have contacted restricted free-agent center Enes Kanter of the Thunder about a deal, per the Daily News

Kanter, who came to the Thunder in a midseason deal with the Jazz, thrived in Oklahoma City, averaging 18.7 points and 6.4 rebounds per game in 26 games after the trade. The Thunder made Kanter a qualifying offer earlier in the week, meaning they have the opportunity to match any new deal he receives. 


Report: Heat targeting PG J.J. Barea, PF Carlos Boozer
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(12:12 pm ET) According to reports, the Heat are on the verge of signing veteran point guard J.J. Barea to a backup role and are exploring the possibility of acquiring power forward Carlos Boozer, per the Palm Beach Post

The Heat are crowded at guard, which may make Mario Chalmers the odd-man out given his $4.3 million salary. Barea averaged 7.5 points and 3.7 assists for the Mavericks last season. 

Boozer could be viewed as a replacement for Chris Andersen. Boozer is not a strong defender, but did average 17.8 points last season for the Lakers. 


Hawks reach deal with C Walter Tavares
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(11:39 am ET) The Hawks reached an agreement Thursday with their second-round pick of the 2014 draft, center Walter Tavares of Cape Verde, per Yahoo Sports. 

Tavares, who was selected 43rd by the Hawks, is a 7-foot-3 defensive force, with a 7-foot-9 wingspan. He spent the last season playing for Gran Canaria in the Spanish League, where he averaged around eight points and eight rebounds. 


Report: C Greg Monroe to sign max deal with Bucks
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(11:10 am ET) In what would be a surprising move, Yahoo Sports is reporting that free-agent center Greg Monroe will sign a max-level deal with the Bucks on Thursday, choosing Milwaukee over the perceived front-running Knicks. The deal is believed to be for three years and $50 million. 

Monroe averaged 15.9 points and 10.2 rebounds per game for the Pistons last season, and left Detroit seeking more opportunity to produce. The center met with the Knicks, who had been the presumed favorite for his services for several months. 

Monroe has career averages of 14.3 points and 9.3 rebounds per game in five years with Detroit. 


PF David West targeting Spurs, Warriors
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(11:05 am ET) Free-agent forward David West said he is ready to play for a championship contender, and with that in mind, he is leaning toward signing with either the Spurs or Warriors, per USA Today

West, who declined a $12.2 million option with the Pacers, likely will take less money for a chance to win a title. He would make the veteran's mininum if he signed with Golden State and take a pay cut to join San Antonio. 

"At this point in my career, it's all about winning," West said in an interview with WTHR. "And again, I don't want to be in a position where we're just fighting to make the playoffs, I want to be in a spot where we can legitimately taste the finals."


Report: Nets interested in PF Thomas Robinson
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(10:27 am ET) The Nets are looking for reserve big men, and one of their targets appears to be forward Thomas Robinson, per the New York Post

Robinson apparently has been on the Nets' radar for sometime, as they were interested in signing the forward when he was placed on waivers last year by the Trail Blazers. But the 76ers picked him up, and he finished the season averaging 5.7 points and 5.6 rebounds in 54 games. 


Pelicans reach five-year deal with C Omer Asik
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(10:14 am ET) The Pelicans continued to spend money to maintain a dominant center position, reaching a five-year, $58 million deal with reserve Omer Asik, per the New Orleans Times-Picayune, one day after signing All-Star big man Anthony Davis to a $145 million extension. 

Asik, who averaged 9.8 rebounds off the bench last season, is a key component of the Pelicans' second unit and the team wanted him back in the fold. Asik will make $11.1 million over the course of the deal, with only the first four years guaranteed. 

Asik registered 7.3 points with New Orleans last season. 


Warriors SF Draymond Green reaches five-year deal with team
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(9:56 am ET) After some intense negotiations, the Warriors and forward Draymond Green reached a deal late Wednesday worth $82-$85 million, per Bay Area News Group. 

"I'm proud to say that I'll be a Warrior for at least the next five years," Green said in a video for Bleacher Report. "It's been a long journey to get to this point whether it's always trying to overcome the odds, overcome the doubters. To be in this position signing back long-term with the Warriors is amazing."

Green averaged career highs in points (11.7) and rebounds (8.2) while finishing in second place for NBA Defensive Player of the Year. He excelled in the postseason as well, recording a triple-double in the Finals-clinching win in Game 6. 


Kings deal Landry, Thompson, Stauskas to 76ers
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(9:40 am ET) The Kings completed a deal with the 76ers late Wednesday, moving Carl Landry, Jason Thompson and Nik Stauskas and a first-round draft pick to Philly in exchange for future draft picks and a pair of foreign players drafted in the second round, per ESPN. 

The move opens up nearly $15 million in cap space for the Kings as they try to bring in marquee free agents. 

Landry averaged 7.2 points and 3.8 rebounds last season, Thompson tallied 6.1 points and 6.5 rebounds and Stauskas registered 4.4 points, but the former first-round pick could become a valuable asset in the 76ers fast-paced scheme.
